A post shared by Idris Elba (@idriselba)

"I love you so much, the last year has been one of the toughest of my life and I only got through it because of you," he wrote on Instagram. "@sabrinaelba my ride or die."

This comes after the couple tested positive for COVID-19 and quarantined together in New Mexico.

"As soon as I heard that Idris was potentially exposed, I mean, I was on the my way anyway, I wanted to be with him," she revealed on the Apple TV+ series "Oprah Talks COVID-19."

"I think that's an instinct as a wife. You just want to go and take care," she added.

Beautiful inside and out, it's no surprise that Sabrina changed Idris' mind about marriage.

"You know, I'm 47 this year, been married and lived a full life before I even met Sabrina," he said in an interview with British Vogue. "It wasn't something that I wanted to do, get married again. But..."

"Sabrina has deepened friendships with people I've known longer than [her], nurturing the best side of me to make me connect to my friends more," he added.

"Dear White People" Swirl Gone Sour?  Logan Browning And John Patrick Amedori Talk Flipping THIS N'S
Dear White People Vol. 4 episodic still

Ruh-Roh! Are "Dear White People" sweeties Sam and Gabe hitting a bump in the road this season?

BOSSIP's Sr. Content Director Janeé Bolden spoke with "Dear White People" stars Logan Browning (Samantha White) and John Patrick Amedori (Gabe Mitchell) about Vol. 4 being a musical season and their reaction when they first found out. Needless to say, the actors were happy about the news.

"We've always talked about a musical episode and how fun it would be so when they decided to do a whole season what was I going to say, 'No'? " Amedori recalled to BOSSIP. "We were given the opportunity to be in a musical. Come on, let's do it. "

When asked about his favorite song to perform this season he didn't hesitate to answer with N'Sync's hit breakup jam: "Bye, Bye Bye."

"Absolutely 'Bye, Bye, Bye'!' Amedori's co-star Logan Browning chimed in.

"That was also really good too because, Logan and I the way we work together, from the previous recording to the day of shooting we kind of choreographed, well our choreography within the fight, and let us do the scene as a real fight with how we felt, it just felt really good it kind of came together, that's definitely a highlight for me," Amedori told BOSSIP.

Source: Patrick McElhenney / Netflix

For folks who aren't fans of the show, Browning and Amedori both play film students/filmmakers and much of Vol. 4 revolves around their projects and what they decide to keep and leave out. We had to ask if there were things from the actual show that they were sad to see cut from previous seasons.

"I definitely have things that didn't make it, but," Browning paused before telling BOSSIP. " No that would be a spoiler. There is something - there are things."

"In general, at least I know joke-wise, I know that nobody was safe ever and I really enjoyed that aspect." Amedori told BOSSIP. " There was never a moment of 'was that too much?'"

"I know, " Logan interjected. "So we shot episode 8 of season two, part of one scene as a oner - where John Patrick and I and the camera operators were all moving in tandem, which we all thought was going to be one long cut. It ended up being cut up, which worked for the episode, but we were doing it so they wouldn't have to cut but that's very ambitious. That was one thing that was very hard to shoot."

Sounds intense right? Well these two actors are very intense about their craft.

"We loved it!" Browning told BOSSIP.

"We couldn't wait," John Patrick Amedori added. "We spent an entire night going over it so by the time we brought the crew in to watch the rehearsal, we went full board we were 110% the entire time. We were ready to go. We were doing a performance."

Source: Courtesy Netflix / Netflix

The show is named "Dear White People" after Browning's character Sam's controversial radio show. In the final season, Sam continues to catch hell from other Black students for her interracial relationship with Gabe. As "Dear White People," primary white character we wanted to know what Gabe learned in the show's four seasons.

"He's a guy who steps in it along the way," Amedori told BOSSIP. "He steps in it in a relationship with a girl that he's madly in love with, he messes it up and she forgives him. To know that he means well. That's her nature. It's a good balance for them being in the relationship because when he puts his foot in his mouth he's essentially putting both of their feet in her mouth."

Amedori's unintentional play on words draws laughter both from BOSSIP and Browning, who responds, "That is very John Patrick. I don't know what made me go back and look at an interview we did at the Paley Center and your answers to this question were so sus, I was like cracking up."

"I have weird metaphors that start turning in my brain," Amedori explained to BOSSIP. "They make sense to me and I just hope that they make sense. Which is kind of how I exist as a person."

Amedori finished his thoughts by saying he didn't think Gabe would be the person he ends up being (this season also includes a look at most of the key characters 20 years in the future) without having known Sam.

Watch the full interview below:

We've really enjoyed watching this relationship blossom over four seasons and can't wait for the rest of the world to see how Vol. 4 plays out.

New episodes of "Dear White People" arrived on Netflix this Wednesday, September 22!

For Your Information: Johnson & Johnson Says One-Dose Booster Vaccine Is 94% Effective Against COVID

Does this make you feel better about taking the vaccine?

Source: NurPhoto / Getty

The debate and often violent backlash against vaccines and scientifically proven information among laypersons in society continues to rage in the wake of Donald Trump's know-nothing presidency. Even folks who thought the 55% of white women's tangerine-in-chief was out of his damn mind still seem to employ his logic, or lack thereof, when arguing against taking legitimate medicine.

That said, vaccines are still being produced and the latest effort from Johnson & Johnson has yielded some fairly efficient results, according to a DailyMail report. The new J&J booster shot, a one-dose treatment, is said to be 94% effective against COVID-19 if given approximately two months after receiving the initial jab. That's a 24% increase from the 70% protection provided by shot number one. This new data will be used by J&J to sell the efficacy of their drug to the FDA and other federal regulators. Selling the data to the public is another matter entirely.

A single-shot COVID-19 vaccine that is easy to use, distribute and administer, and that provides strong and long-lasting protection is crucial to vaccinating the global population,' Dr Paul Stoffels, J&J's chief scientific officer, said in a statement.

'At the same time, we now have generated evidence that a booster shot further increases protection against COVID-19 and is expected to extend the duration of protection significantly.'

Are you still doing "research" about getting vaccinated or...?

Scammers Allegedly Received $200k From Fake Drivers To Delivery Apps

Federal Agents annouce the arrest of over a dozen people tied to a food delivery service scam involving identity theft, bots, and GPS spoofing all to steal money from referrals.

Source: Mike Kemp / Getty

As technology goes on to bring convenience to people's lives, the loopholes people find to abuse for profit. Add the pandemic to the mix and you have people putting common sense to the side to feed their families. We've recently seen several people going to jail over PPP loans they couldn't resist. Something about getting millions or thousands of dollars by illegally filling out a piece of paper is too good for some to pass up. Even with unemployment, we've seen rappers talk about abusing EDD before ending up in jail.

Recently, Federal authorities announced a bust in a scam we likely never thought would even exist. A group of around 12 men used food delivery apps to trick people into letting them scan their IDs which they used to make fake profiles to collect referral bonuses. They allegedly made $1,000 for each account with the schemers making $194,000 total. All of which is completely illegal but the group advertised their fake accounts to Brazilian nationals working in Massachusetts as if it's legal. Well, the fun is over and everyone is going to jail.

The icing on the cake was the group-created software it rented to drivers to help snatch orders faster and cheat the system. All these resources into an illegal operation when they could have made a legit product. The length people goto to scam is unreal and they always end up getting caught.

A Naywoo-Palooza?! Dru Hill Tells 112, Jagged Edge, Jodeci & Boyz II Men 'Whoever Wants It Can Get I

Dru Hill is apparently taking an "anybody can get it" approach to challenging other iconic '90s R&B groups to a Verzuz battle. On Sunday, the group's members recorded a video of themselves aggressively putting into the universe the possibility of stepping onto the stage to battle it out with a shortlist of groups that might possibly be able to keep up with them in competition.

Source: Prince Williams / Getty

"Whoever wants it, can get it, whether it's Jodeci, Boyz II Men..." lead singer and thong enthusiast Sisqó said in the clip. "Maybe 112 and Jagged Edge could combine to one group, and then they might have a chance."

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by DRU HILL (@druhill4real)



Dru Hill currently consists of original members of Nokio [white glasses, red shorts], Sisqó, and newbies Smoke E. Digglera and Digital Black. The group also recently posed for pics with original group member Jazz [black shirt and black mask].

A post shared by DRU HILL (@druhill4real)


112 and Jagged Edge already battled it out against each other in a May Verzuz, but apparently, them "Dru World Order" boys don't think either group, individually, has a catalog worthy of head-to-head competition and would have to Voltron themselves into a mega tag-team group in order to enter the Dru dojo for a friendly nayhoo-off.

Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing all of these groups-Jodeci and Boyz II Men included-get together for a "whooo-yeah" royal rumble on the Verzuz stage.

The battle could take place in the middle of a random desert where the wind is blowing fiercely for whatever reason and some of the groups' members are standing in an open-shirt Michael Jackson pose while others are lying belly-down in the sand with their arms extended into an open-hand reach.

In fact, why even stop with these five groups?

I can just see the "Baby, I'm beggin'" free-for-all happening in the ring right now, and just when you thought one group was about to emerge victorious, HERE COMES H-TOWN WITH THE CHAIR!!!

(Silk, Shai and Backstreet Boys were still waiting outside the ring deciding if they were going to jump over the ropes or just chill because that's a whole lot of smoke and they ain't sure if they want any of it yet.)

Notice, nobody in Dru Hill fixed themselves to say Jodeci and Boyz II Men needed to join forces in order to beat them because they knew the chances of them getting washed into Dru-blivion against either group by themselves would be too high. 

So, who do y'all think is the perfect matchup for Dru Hill in a Verzuz battle?

The Late Michael K. Williams, Sterling K. Brown, and Aunjanae Ellis Expected To Win EMMYs Tonight, H

It's that time of the year again where we gather around the television with our families and brace ourselves to see whether the stars from our favorite shows get to walk away with a coveted Emmy Award. Sometimes they win big. On some occasions, they get snubbed, but we're making a few predictions ahead of tonight's big awards show that could put some of those frustrations and fears at ease.

Emmy critics project that shows like "The Crown," "Ted Lasso" and "Mare of Easttown," will hit the jackpot tonight, securing a couple of awards across multiple categories. There's a high probability that Jason Sudeikis, who plays the role of a small-time football coach "Ted Lasso" will walk away with an award for Oustanding Lead Actor in a comedy series. According to the New York Post, critics also believe that the show will take the Outstanding Comedy Series category beating out its competitors that include Black-ish," "Cobra Kai," "Pen15," and "Hacks," amongst others.

Experts believe Michael K. Williams, who tragically passed earlier this month, will finally receive recognition for his lengthy and notable acting career. We're praying that the star is given an award for his incredible work in "Lovecraft Country." Williams is up for the coveted statue in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category. The Hollywood Reporter notes that if he wins, his award will be accepted by his nephew and mentee, Dominic Dupont. Williams would also become only the seventh posthumous performance winner in the 73-year history of the Emmys.

As previously reported, the HBO horror drama series "Lovecraft Country", which was canned for its second season back in July, is up for 18 nominations. Lovecraft's Aunjanue Ellis is up for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.

However, Majors is up against some tough competition. "This Is Us" star Sterling K. Brown and Billy Porter of "Pose" could have a strong chance of beating out the actor for the spot, the LA Times predicts. Brown is nominated for his role as Randall Peterson in the NBC series while Porter is up for his second award for staring in the FX drama. Porter made history at the 2019 Emmy Awards after he became the first openly gay black man to win the award for Best Actor in a Drama Series.

BOSSIP Horoscopes By Zya: Week Of September 19 - 25


BOSSIP Horoscopes By Zya: Week Of September 19 - 25
Bossip Horoscopes
Bossip Horoscopes

Happy Sunday! What better way to plan for the week ahead than by checking what the stars have in store?

Source: iOne Digital / Tommy de Yampert

Our favorite Black psychic Zya is back with with week's BOSSIP Horoscopes to help guide you!

Astro Overview:

This week kicks off with a Harvest Full Moon in Pisces on the 20th, while Mars and the Sun move into Libra on the 22nd. Venus continues to ride through Scorpio.

Major themes of indecision and strong under currents of emotions come to the surface to be healed especially around the areas of relationships, romance and sexual taboos, thanks to the Venus and Moon placements.

People may find that old loves return which allow them to examine their shadow issues in this area and critically evaluate their levels of joy and contentment in their current dating/marital status.

With so much happening in the Air Sign of Libra which is known for its inability to make swift and actionable decisions, all signs are better off working through their communication and relationship styles and holding off on making any major plans until the sun moves into Scorpio which also allows for us to come out of the upcoming Mercury Retrograde on the 26th that ends on the 17th of October.


Source: iOne Digital / Tommy de Yampert


All the plans that the 2020 Global Lockdown put on hold are now ready to swing into frenzied action. While the universe generally supports this momentum, you will have to fight against indecisiveness, niggling doubts and fears with both the Sun and Mars in Libra complicating your ability to execute as swiftly as you would like. Don't stop but be sure to mindfully reflect as you move forward and it's totally okay for things to take a beat for a great 2022.

Red Flags: People will be flaky this week. People may include yourself. Have a back up for your back up and give yourself grace.

Sweet Spots: Plans put in place almost two years ago are now ready for action - slim them down to your core wants and needs - and you'll be golden.

Source: iOne Digital / Tommy de Yampert


With both the Sun and Mars in your fellow air sign Libra and Venus in Scorpio, the signs are aligning for you to expand both your sensual preferences and your creative expressions. It's also a time to get "mindfully messy" in a good way and allow yourself some freedom to explore a new layer of yourself. Push yourself out of your comfort zones by traveling either via a new cuisine or taking a trip to a brand new part of the world.

Red Flags: Failing to follow your intuition and excitement about new sides of yourself will place you into a dusty rut by years end.

Sweet Spot: Your lover(s) will be open to bold experimental changes, just make sure to get their courageous consent before hand instead of surprising them out of the blue.

Tearful Testimony: London On Da Track's Mother Testifies About Time As R. Kelly's Assistant

The more we know, the worse it gets!

Source: Chicago Tribune / Getty

When it comes to R. Kelly, there's alcways more sick sh*t to uncover. Buzzfeed News reports that on the 18th day of testimony, Cheryl Mack took the witness stand in the disgraced singer's sex trafficking and racketeering trial on Friday. Mack, who is the mother of platinum music producer London On Da Track, stated that she didn't want to be part of the trial, but she was subpoenaed by the prosecutors.

She first started working with Kelly in 2009 as a talent manager for a 17-year-old artist identified in court as Precious. Kelly offered to collaborate with Precious on her music and invited her to work in his studio. The young artist even started living in a hotel near the singer's home. Mack said the partnership ended "abruptly" and Kelly demanded that she travel from Atlanta to Chicago immediately because her client threatened to sue him for sexual harassment. "He told me she was trying to file a lawsuit, and I needed to pick a team."

That choice came with what Mack described as a threat from Kelly, "In these situations, people come up missing." His manager and lawyer rushed Mack into signing a pre-written affidavit without even reading it. She recalled seeing questions about whether Kelly had sexual contact with Precious or gave her alcohol, but she isn't sure if ever answered them.

The Chicago attorney who helped keep R. Kelly's settlements with victims out of the courts (and out of the news) for decades: My latest on the stories behind the trial @NewYorker.

— Jim DeRogatis (@JimDeRogatis) September 14, 2021

It is unclear exactly what happened to Precious and her potential lawsuit against Kelly. Mack didn't see Kelly again until she was working with Devyne Stephens, who was behind a comeback for the Pied Piper in 2013. After they reconnected, she continued working closely with Kelly as his executive assistant.

During her time as an assistant, she was bullied into signing one of the incriminating false apology letters other witnesses and survivors of Kelly's abuse previously discussed. I apologized out of fear. I was 1,000% scripted," Mack said. He was also financially abusive as a boss, refusing to pay her for 3 - 6 months as punishment for booking a performance that didn't Kelly didn't think paid enough money.

She saw firsthand how the very young women in his company were subjected to strict and humiliating rules like having to face the wall or flee the presence of any other men. While in his hotel room after a show, she also witnessed a young woman giving Kelly a massage that made the former assistant "very uncomfortable. That wasn't my business, I was there to work." That woman is one of the Kelly's accusers in the trial who was only publicly identified as "Jane."

For nearly a month, reporter Anastasia Tsioulcas has been in a New York courtroom to cover R. Kelly's federal trial. After hearing testimony from dozens of witnesses, here's what she can't stop thinking about:

— NPR (@NPR) September 16, 2021

The next day, Mack quit after Kelly lost his temper, screaming and cursing at her in the middle of a McDonald's over a spoiled birthday surprise for his stylist at the time. So far everyone who worked with Kelly, seemed to be an enabler, a victim of abusive behavior themselves, or a combination of both.

Throughout her tesimony, Mack was very emotional. She often required long pauses before she could continue answering questions on the stand. Courtroom drawings depicted her clutching tissue for her tears. The trial will resume next week with more testimony  from clinical psychologist Dana Hughesa bout how underage girls are groomed for and cope with sexual abuse.

GOAT Talk: Usain Bolt Advises Sha'Carri Richardson To 'Train Harder' And 'Not Say Too Much'

When the goat talks you listen, simple as that!

Source: Ian MacNicol / Getty

The eight-time Olympic gold medal winner, Usain Bolt has offered up some advice to fellow sprinter Sha'Carri Richardson telling her to tone down her trash talk and concentrate on her training.

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Usain St.Leo Bolt (@usainbolt)

Bolt explained to the New York Post that by bad-mouthing her rivals she would actually just make them more determined to beat her. Sha'Carri Richardson, who was booted out of the US Olympic team earlier this year after testing positive for cannabis was given a one-month ban, which meant she wasn't able to compete in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

"I would tell Sha'Carri to train harder and to be focused and not say too much... If you talk that big talk you have to back it up. So just train hard and focus on that and try to come back, do it and then talk about it."

Richardson returned to the track last month, for the 100m dash at the Nike Prefontaine Classics and did a lot of talking before the race took place. So much to the point that all the trash talk back fired once she came in last.

Bolt says his fellow Jamaican runners were less than impressed with Richardson's attitude.

"Jamaicans were vexed because she was talking a lot of s**t before the actual race, it is just one of those things. Jamaicans don't like when people talk s**t about us because we are a very proud people so if you talk about us we are gonna want you to back it up. It definitely gave those women the extra push [to win.]"

If it's one thing Bolt is familiar with that's winning and dealing with competitors who talk trash so we hope sis listens to the goat and instead of being offended actually taking his advice and putting it to use.
